The hotel reception was very grand, unfortunately the room did not match the entrance, the furniture was grubby and well worn and while the walls where hand painted the same colour would look more professional. The breakfast was good but I would not describe the view from the

We stayed for five nights in Jan 19. The hotel is old and has atmosphere, with heavy dark furniture and antiques. Our first room (we were moved after the first two nights because they needed to do work in our room), was very large and had a separate twin-bedded room through the

Upon entering the cavernous courtyard/patio area I immediately felt as if I had stepped back in time 100+ years ago. This is an old building (three levels) that surround a charming interior courtyard. The entire place has been meticulously renovated and has kept virtually all of

LATAM has several flights a day from Quito, and it's about a half hour in the air. The planes are relatively new Airbus 319s and 320s, and LATAM (formerly LAN) has an excellent safety record. It does not appear that you can fly directly from Guayaquil to Cuenca, as you have to fly to Quito first. The bus ride is long, and many buses don't have an on-board bathroom. We booked our one-way flight from Cuenca to Quito only 3 days in advance, and it was $167 for two adults.

"Room 11 was in a quiet corner"
"Stay in the main building rather than the annex if you can. Also away from the street side."
"Only choose a balcony if you can handle a little more noise."
"For challenged travelers the hotel has accessible accommodation in the new wing."
"Balcony rooms offer nice city views"
